Nine, Seven and Two

These numbers are the meaning of my life. They are the ages of my kids. These are the folks, I hangout with everyday.

When I became a mom, I never imagined how my life would change drastically. I mean it’s such a 360.

I can’t even remember, the last time I went to take a piss without peeing on my underwear. Or taking a dump with having an audience.

Heck! Sometimes I, don’t remember to brush my teeth. This is how it has been since becoming a mom.

When kids are babies they seem to be more manageable. At some point. Because heck, you already don’t sleep but they tend to sleep and eat and not ask for anything.

Now, all I hear is nagging, yelling, whining, crying, just noise after noise.

Sometimes, I wish my kids would understand how stressful it is to take care of them. To be able to see that Mom is tired. That I, need to sleep for five hundred years. And wake up when they are well behaved.

Then again I was just daydreaming!

Being a parent is a huge responsibility. You stop caring for yourself and care for others who don’t have a clue of their surroundings. And then you are too concerned about how everyone else is doing and you are all broken and ticking like a bomb ready to explode. Or at least that is how I feel.

After being a stay at home for almost 9 years. I have come to realize that. Nobody will care for your kids like yourself.

The dad goes to work and is not concerned of how or what is going on with the children. I can be a broken crying newborn and he doesn’t even bother to ask what’s wrong? I won’t apologize for this but

“men are assholes”

Yes, I said it. And I’m not taking it back.

Our kids are not brought to this world by one person. But by two people who fall in love.

So, man up and take charge of the kids.

Just because you’re a parent don’t treat your wife different. Yeah, she might not look like she did ten years ago. But inside she is tired, broken, lonely, screaming for help.

Yearning for someone’s touch. The need to hear that she’s okay. She’s beautiful. She’s doing great. Momma were in this together.

I tell this to you momma, if you are reading this. We’re in this together. I, feel your pain. You’re tiredness. Your anger. Your loneliness. Parenting is heartbreaking and deadly. But with the grace of god we will make it.

We will raise these little folks and one day look back and cry and say, “oh, how I miss when I couldn’t even!”

If your kid asks you to play tag, play with them. Screw dinner and the pile of dishes.

Yeah, maybe right now we feel trapped and look like zombies. but it will all be worth it. Kids are little for a certain amount of time. Enjoy all the giggles and non sense. And that booger that my son always places on my cheek.

And to those who wish not to be part of this journey? Screw them.

EAT PRAY AND BE HAPPY…

Back to school 

My kids start school next Tuesday! YES!

But I’m still home with my toddler. Which is like having five kids. He’s very active and non stop.

I’m going to miss my two older kids. It’s funny, how I tease them that I’m so happy that they are going back to school. They get all upset.

In reality it’s the total opposite. Although they keep me accelerated with my nerves out the roof. They keep me company and make me laugh.

Back to school means waking up early and getting them ready. My kids are spoiled I still help them get dressed.

I Also have to remind them to “brush your teeth,” “comb your hair!” ” were going to be late!”

Also need to get the little one dressed and get all three in the car.

I’m sweating by the time I’m driving to school. I always lecture my kids on the way to school. “keep your hands to yourself,” ” be safe” “nobody is to touch you anywhere” “stand up to bullies.”

I really dislike bullies. Bullying damages self esteem and confidence of kids. Kids now a days are so vulnerable and don’t get help.

I was bullied through elementary and middle school. Due to my weight. But I never had a low self esteem. I brushed it off.

It hurts when my kids come crying after school. Telling me how they get picked on. I promise I will be in that school 24/7 to avoid my kids having a bad day due to a bully.

These bully kids suffer from attention and love. They don’t receive any at home. And expect others to suffer too. It starts at home.

Traffic is terrible to drop the kids off. And I get off my car and walk them to the gate and hug and kiss them. Wishing them a safe happy day.
I always see parents drop their children in the middle of the street. That scares me.

During the day I try to nap with my little one. At least 30 minutes. Then I get ready and run quick errands like market, laundry wash the car.

I also like to go to the mall or Target. Even if I don’t buy anything. I get distracted.

I also plan a quick dinner. I always make the kids a healthy smoothie for after school. They have a great appetite. So the smoothie covers a bit while I’m working on dinner.

Once dinner is finished. We work on homework. Am, I the only one that feels like I’m in school all over again?

Sometimes I just can’t figure out the homework! It’s been so long…

We shower after and watch a bit of tv. They have a cup of milk with a cookie. Brush teeth and head to bed.

For sure the first week is going to be tuff. After staying late all vacation and waking up late. There sleep will be all over the place.

How do you moms prepare for back to school? If you have any tips please feel free to share!

I want to wish all the kids a happy safe school year! 📓✏️🖍✂️📏📎
